Accessibility bill halted at legisature

The McNeil Government has halted a bill to make the province more accessible to disabled people, according to the CBC.

Community Services Minister Joanne Bernard called it historic when she introduced it last week. However, the disabled and other experts told a legislature committee yesterday the bill is flawed, inadequate and weak…and needed to go back to the drawing board.

After listening to the complaints, Liberal caucus chair Iain Rankin proposed a motion to stand the bill which freezes it in the law-making process.
